Review verdict for the Google Pixel Tablet: The Google Tablet is a well-implemented concept
Following on from the Pixel C, Google is bringing an exciting concept onto the market in the form of the Pixel Tablet. A concept which could change the way tablet lovers use their tablets. During our tests, the smooth interaction between the docking station and the tablet worked very well. Overall, we were impressed by this type of tablet usage and it left us wanting more. Google's all-in-one solution, consisting of a classic tablet, smart home hub and smart speaker, definitely still has a lot of potential with our future wishes including Bluetooth control or a multiroom function.
Otherwise, the Pixel Tablet offers solid hardware for an RRP of $499. Display fetishists will certainly not be satisfied with the Pixel Tablet's 60 Hz panel, however, following the Galaxy Tab S9's switch to OLED technology, it provides an interesting alternative for people sensitive to PWM.
The Tensor chipset found in the Pixel Tablet might not be able to keep pace with the current high-end SoCs but, in our review, we never felt we had insufficient power at our disposal. In particular, the low heat dissipation doesn't result in a dip in performance. The Wild Life stress tests clearly highlighted that an increase in load only results in a drop in performance of only around 2 percent. Although the Tensor G2 isn't exactly the most efficient chipset in 2023, it's astounding what the Mountain View-based company can squeeze out of a (quite small for a 10.95-inch tablet) 7,020 mAh battery – also when compared to a device with similar hardware such as the Apple iPad 10. In the practical Wi-Fi test, the Google Tab managed an excellent 16.5 hours and 20.5 hours with the Wi-Fi module deactivated during continuous video playback.
